The Berman fund was established in 2005 by a generous challenge grant by Fred and Karen Reams to recognize the contributions and vision of former Hospital Trustee, L. Paul Berman, who passed away in 2005. An intelligent and community-minded individual, Paul spearheaded the Hospital's growth into a regional facility and championed the Hospital's renovation in the 1990s. The Berman Memorial fund endowment will support programs that will accelerate adoption of state-of-the-art, cost-effective patient care.
